First Line: Yonder o'er the sea like a swallow hasting over
Last Line: Than rend you asunder golden threads that she hath sewn!
Subject(s): Lips; Love; Smiles


YONDER o'er the sea like a swallow hasting over,
Fain would I fly till I reached the shore beyond!
Vainly I long who am held a captive lover;
With three strands of golden thread she hath my heart in bond.

One is her glance, and one her smile compelling,
One is her lip like a flower nigh to fall;
Nay, but I love too well, and suffer beyond telling;
With three strands of golden thread she hath my heart in thrall.

Ah! If I might break the so stubborn knots that bind me,
Bid farewell to weeping and to pain, a truant flown!
But ah! No! No! Better death in anguish find me,
Than rend you asunder golden threads that she hath sewn!
